    Pukkelpop 2019

    It's not as easy to predict some of them now due to the change of late night music policy in the Castello last year but here's my guesses (anything in bold I'm pretty much 100% certain of): Friday Boiler - Jauz, Alison Wonderland, Sigma, Modestep, Ekali, Job Jobse Dance Hall - Modeselektor, Jon Hopkins, Martin Solveig, Joost Castello - Agoria, Avalon Emerson, Flohio, Loyle Carner, Slowthai Booth - Volvox Saturday Boiler - Sam Paganini, The Black Madonna, Honey Dijon Dance Hall - Chase and Status, Camo and Krooked, Meute, De Jeugd van Tegenwoordig Castello - Stephan Bodzin, Sohn, Ross from Friends, Franc Moody, Hunee, Booth - Palms Trax Sunday Boiler - Amelie Lens, Pan Pot, Camelphat, Sango Dance Hall - Jeff Mills, Princess Nokia, Castello - Jayda G, Kate Tempest, Ghostmane Sunday's looking a bit thin on the ground at the moment as only 17 names announced in total. Saturday is the best day for me so far as already into double figures with bands and DJs I want to see. Hoping tomorrow brings a nice mix - would love to see Doves, The Streets and Friendly Fires get announced.

    What a cracking announcement! So much quality there across the board and loads of 'must sees' for me that will probably mean I spend another year doing shuttle runs between the dance stages for most of the weekend! Friday - Modeselektor, Jon Hopkins, Avalon Emerson, Agoria, Sigma, Job Jobse Saturday - Chase and Fucking Status, Stephan Bodzin (!), Sam Paginini, The Black Madonna, Hunee, Honey Dijon, Palms Trax, Ross from Friends Sunday - Amelie Lens, Pan Pot, Camelphat, Jayda G, Jeff Mills Big worry now is how to fit them all in, bearing in mind there's still a lot more to come.

    The top line of the poster is currently very similar to LL so agree with you that they've got something different/bigger to come. Will definitely check out Loyle Carner as heard good things about him.

    As 'pop ' announcements go, today was pretty decent. Charli XCX and Anne Marie are harmless throw-away afternoon fun in the sun (like Dua Lipa last year), Martin Solvieg is cheesy but has a big back catalogue and there's definitely kudos in having a current Glastonbury headliner playing lower down your bill. Ezra Collective and Franc Moody sound interesting, Crystal Fighters are always good value and Jorja Smith is making lots of waves so plenty to check out. Happened to stumble across Kate Tempest a few years ago in the Castello and she was amazing so will try and see her again if timings permit. Loving these daily announcements as it keeps the anticipation levels up as you've always got something to look forward to. Strategy is working really well so far as I can't remember a year when there's been so much positivity on Efests?!? Still time though for them to announce Placebo and Snow Patrol to give all the grumpy old men on here something to moan about

    Twenty One Pilots back in 2013. Speak to any of their hardcore fans who've been following them from the very beginning and they'll tell you they were all there - all 20,000 of them Think they'll get a few more this time though...

    Tame Impala in the Club 2010. I've got a set list somewhere but can't find it. Will post a pic when it turns up:

    Been looking through a few old pictures and found these - Evolution of a headliner! The National in the Marquee 2008:

    It's a tradition now so we've got no choice really!

    Be interesting to see what days they both play and whether the National do two consecutive nights or Lowlands in between? Think it will be the former but could depend on which festival booked them first?

    Decent if predictable start with those two names. Looking forward to seeing who we get over the next few announcements though and still hopeful there'll be plenty of good bands and DJs once the bulk of the line up is known. Great news that Doves will be playing Victorious the weekend after PKP - got to make them a strong possibility now!

    Looks like Aphex Twin is playing Rock en Seine so is definitely in the mix for PKP. Will be a major coup if they do get him - easily Dance Hall headliner but possibly even in the Marquee.

    That poster isn't real but there's a good few bands/DJs that will play because it's based on who is touring festivals in August. Fair play to the person who's made it though - love the 'sample' nod to last year! I'm not going to make any predictions (as I'm rubbish at them) but if all or some of Doves, Foals, Groove Armada, The Prodigy, Adam Beyer x Cirez D, The Streets, Maceo Plex, Boris Brejcha, Friendly Fires, Future Islands, Modeselektor, New Order, Helena Hauff, Mall Grab and a few decent DnB DJs get announced then I'll be more than happy. Granted some of these aren't officially touring but doesn't mean they won't turn up - I've got complete faith in the PKP crew to pull it out of the bag this year! Roll on Monday!

    Massive batch of names just dropped for Boomtown, which is a week before PKP. Big one for me is Groove Armada (live) so will be absolutely ecstatic if they are announced. Think we'll get the new Chase and Status thing which I'm pretty sure is a DJ set but with loads of MCs and some old school jungle DJs thrown in. They've got Carl Cox as well - please let this be the year!!! We were expecting some of these anyway but confident we'll also get Slaves, The Streets, Prophets of Rage, My Nu Leng and Four Tet.

    It was someone on the Stinky Little Gods forum. Not the most active place but there's always a few people who seem to have a bit of inside info from time to time.
